While Bambino and Bawa traverse Lagos for days photographing the many facets of the megapolis together, an unexpected intimacy unfurls between the two, a reconciliation of different worlds of experience. Concentrated, serene images and discreet use of colour accentuate the sensuality and closeness of the men all the more. As a tender love blossoms, a place riddled with contradictions, hostilities, and complex politics comes to light: the city of Lagos, with its millions of inhabitants, an unruly and violent setting, yet its interstices bear potentials for freedom. In his politically charged and deeply moving feature film debut, Babatunde Apalowo tells of love – and a love that can never be lived to the fullest.
